FOOD LION WILL OPEN STORES IN HOUSTON, TEXAS

 FOOD LION WILL OPEN STORES IN HOUSTON, TEXAS
 SALISBURY, N.C., Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Encouraged by success in


the Dallas-Ft. Worth market, Food Lion, Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: FDLN) announced today it will open 30 to 40 stores in the Houston, Texas, market beginning late this year and continuing into early 1993.
 Food Lion is now acquiring sites in the Houston market.
 In September, Food Lion opened its first 21 stores in the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex. The company now operates 42 stores in that market.
 "The Houston market is different in many ways than Dallas," Tom Smith said. "But we found many similarities, including high grocery prices." Smith is Food Lion President, Chief Executive Officer, and Chairman of the Board of Directors.
 Smith said that while the initial thrust will include 30 to 40 stores, the market has potential for many more stores in the future.
 "Our move into Texas has been successful and we will continue to grow in this state," Smith said.
 In addition to the Houston expansion, Food Lion also confirmed that it has acquired six locations in and around Oklahoma City, Okla., and is looking for store locations in Tulsa, Okla. and Shreveport, La.
 Food Lion now operates nearly 900 stores in 12 Southeastern, Mid- Atlantic states and Texas. The company employs more than 50,000 men and women and had 1991 sales of $6.4 billion.
